New Student Enrollment for Fall (2021-22)

For All NEW Shorewood Students (Resident):

Fall enrollment begins on January 1, 2021 for all resident families of a NEW student. We encourage you to register your student as soon as possible to help us balance class sizes and provide appropriate staffing.
  • If you are NEW to the District,
    click this "ONLINE REGISTRATION" link. Be sure to choose Registration Year 2021-2022.
You will be asked to:
  • fill out your household's demographic data, emergency contacts, and general health information.
  • upload two documents to prove Shorewood residency (see below).
  • upload your child's Birth Certificate or Passport (for a child born outside the U.S., a passport is required).

4K KINDERGARTEN

If your child will turn 4 years old as of September 1, 2021 (born on or before 9/1/2017), you may register for fall 4K Kindergarten. When you complete the Online Registration application, you will be asked to state your preference for the AM (8:15 – 11:05am) or PM (12:35 – 3:25pm) 4K Kindergarten session. A lottery for AM/PM placement was held (as of February 1); families wishing to enroll their student in the AM session will be placed on a waiting list.

Elementary school placement is generally determined by the location of your residence in Shorewood. To verify which elementary school your child is eligible to attend, contact Pupil Services at ibohan@shorewood.k12.wi.us or 414-963-6903.

PROOF OF RESIDENCY

In accordance with Wisconsin State Statute, all school districts are required to verify residency for ALL students attending their schools on an annual basis. This applies to both resident and non-resident students (e.g., Chapter 220, Open Enrollment).
  • Within the Online Registration application you will be asked to upload documents.
  • Make a pdf or take a picture of the document you want to submit and save it.
  • Lease documents must include the first and last page and also include the landlord’s or leasing company’s name and phone number.
  • All documents must include the parent/guardian’s name and address.
Per Shorewood School District Policy #420, ALL families need to provide one piece of documentation from EACH of the following lists. Your child will not be allowed to attend school until residency is verified.

LIST A:
  • Current property tax statement (readily available at Village of Shorewood website)
  • Closing statement if you newly purchased a home (within the previous year)
  • Signed current resident lease (including the landlord’s name, address, and phone number)

FOR NON-RESIDENTS

If your child does NOT reside in Shorewood, there are two paths for them to be able to attend school in the District:
  1. Become a Resident
    Resident students are entitled to receive a free public education in the Shorewood School District and may register to attend at any time. Proof of residency is required at registration.

  2. Apply for Open Enrollment
    The Shorewood School Board determines available Open Enrollment seats for the following school year during the month of January, and families may apply during the Open Enrollment application period from February through April. For more information, visit our Open Enrollment page or call the state's Open Enrollment Information Line at 888-245-2732 or access the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) website.
